That's my girl!

We went to Disneyland the beginning of December. Its my favorite time of the year to go there. They have it decorated so beautifully. It makes the park more magical than it already is. But, we were very hesitant about going this year because Julia has been so difficult. We have a pet name for her...the Raptor.

For those of you who haven't seen me in Church, its because my daughter is a total night owl. Not only is she up late at night, she cries a lot. She has the text book definition of colic times 3. She cries pretty much non-stop from about 5 or 6 p.m. until 1 a.m. Sometimes we get lucky and she takes cat naps during that time - around 30 minutes or so. But, she does sleep straight from about 1 a.m. to 6 a.m. which is nice. She doesn't really nap in the day except for a couple of cat naps as I've said.

Anyhoo...we were worried about going to Disneyland. Getting stuck in line or on a ride with a screaming baby didn't seem at all appealing. But, I promised the other kids we'd go so we did. SHE WAS AN ANGEL! She slept the entire time except to nurse. In fact, for three days after the trip, she had (sort of) a normal baby schedule. She is back to her hold screaming routine but I am so grateful for those 3 days of bliss and a great time at Disneyland. I think we'll go more often. :P

Like how she's in Maleficent's horns?
Already into High School Musical - bleh
Peaceful sleep!
